Terms to Know
- Account Fields - A Field that belongs to the entire account and can be used across all Roadmaps.

- Archive - An action to turn an active roadmap or Field into dormant yet accessible state, without it being fully deleted.

Notifications are a very important way of staying up to date with changes to your roadmaps, Feedback submissions, and Ideas. There are a handful of ways to be notified of these updates, and other places in the tool where you can find important logs and clues for overall account activity.
The first and easiest way to manage and receive notifications is through email. To update your email notification preferences:
- In the Profile tab of Account Settings, click Email Notifications
- Turn notifications on or off by toggling their respective checkboxes
- Click Save to apply the change to your email preferences
NOTE: If you're not online at the time an in-app notification appears, or you don’t open the bell icon and view the notification in-app, Roadmunk will send you an email notification 15 minutes later whenever:
- You're @mentioned in a roadmap Item, piece of Feedback, or an Idea
- One of your team members shares a roadmap with you
- A piece of Feedback you've submitted is processed, redirected, or commented on
- One of your team members adds or removes you as the owner of a Product or Component

Roadmunk also provides in-app notifications through the bell icon on the left-hand menu. These slightly differ from email notifications since this list is comprised of indirect changes caused by other actions. It’s purpose is to let a user know why something changed, even though they didn't directly change it.
In-app notifications include:
- Roadmap Archival, Restore, deletion
- Field Merge, Promotion, Archival, Restore, deletion
- Cross roadmap Dependencies
- Roadmap permission changes (Owner, Editor, View-only)
- Field ownership and member changes
- Account role changes
To keep you up to date with Roadmunk, there are two other emails you could receive:
- Monthly Product Newsletter - This is how you learn about our recently rolled out enhancements and features! It is sent to all active Admins and Collaborators on an account.
- Weekly Digest email - This is a great summary of activity across your account. It is sent to all active Admins and Collaborators on our medium sized Business plans (just for now!).
